Late night at the hospital again, walking through the hallways full of hope and white coats. I'm blending in wearing blue scrubs, but in reality, I am screaming for attention. Blue scrubs mean you are a doctor, but not one with any power, yet. As you might've guessed already, I am a 4th year medical resident at East Wave Central. One of the busiest hospitals on the East Coast. We have the best residential program in the country, as well as the greatest trauma and neurosurgeons. My name is Saia, I’m 26, turning 27 in a month, but who wants to think about getting old, am I right?
I can finally go home, it’s the end of a 24-hour shift, which feels like 48 really. All I want to do is go home, take a bath and have a glass of wine. I make my way to the locker room to change. I start to undress. I hear the door open, and see a shadow appear from behind the locker. A beautiful figure leaves me speechless. She is new, I don’t know who she is. This is weird, we don’t usually take new students until the following year. She is young, but not that young to be a student. I stop what I’m doing and lose myself in her eyes. She is tall, but not too tall, she is wearing heels, and not the kind that makes walking easy. They are black stilettoes, with a red bottom, a skirt that ends just above her knees, a white shirt, tracing her bra line. Subtle red lipstick, suiting her to perfection. Her skin looks so soft, it just makes you want to touch it. She’s standing in front of me with a smile on her face.
Dr. Ford – Hello!
I look behind, thinking she must be talking to someone else.
Dr. Ford – Hi! Everything ok?
Saia – Oh.. uhm.. me? Yes! Why wouldn’t I be?
Dr. Ford – Oh, you just seemed.. never mind!
Saia – I’m sorry, just got lost for a second there, never seen you here before! I’m Saia, Saia Reen! And you are?
Dr. Ford – I apologize, I should’ve introduced myself. I’m Doctor Harper Ford! But everyone calls me Harper. I’m the new cardiothoracic attending! Nice to meet you! Are you one of the attendings here as well?
Saia – Oh, I’m sorry, you must be in the wrong locker room, I’m a 4th-year resident, this is the resident locker room. You are more than welcome to change here, but I hear, the attendings' locker and lounge have better treats! *I say this with a smile on my face and then wink*
Oh my god, why did I do that? Now she’s going to think I’m weird or something. I’m also in a bra! And I just winked at her, at an attending, oh no. I could lose my job.
Harper *a smirk forms on the corner of her lips* - Thank you for letting me know. I would love to chat more, but I don't want to be late for my first day!
Saia – Yes, of course. It was nice to meet you, and good luck on your first day!
Harper – Thank you, I will make sure to run into you again!
And just like that, she disappears. What was that? What does that mean? She's going to make sure to run into me again. I’m not going to think too much about it, she’s definitely into men and also an attending. I make my way home, take a bath, have a glass of wine and fall asleep.
It's Friday, and for some reason, I have the day off. I should take advantage of this! This means I'm going to go shop for some new clothes. My wardrobe needs some improvement. I make my way to the mall in hopes of finding something I like. I'm walking from shop to shop and I finally find something. I decided to try it on. I put the dress on and get out of the changing room so I can see it better in the big mirror that is right outside.
Harper – Wow.. you look stunning..
I turn around, just to find out that she just called me stunning. Am I dreaming? Did I fall and hit my head?
Saia – Oh, Uhm, thank you! I wasn't sure if it was my style, but I guess it is!
She makes her way next to me and pulls on the dress to fix it.
Harper – Here, it had to be adjusted.
Saia – Thank you..
I turn around and get lost in her green eyes. I start to bite my lip slowly without realizing and my eyes travel down just to find myself staring at her lips. I don’t know how long it’s been, and I can’t tell if she noticed me.
Harper – Hey, I’m almost done here, and I was wondering if you wanted to grab a coffee and maybe show me around? I’m new to town..
How can I say no to that? Of course, I’ll show her around..
Saia – Oh, of course, I would love to!
We make our way to a coffee shop and sit down. We start talking and talking and I couldn’t tell you about what. It seemed so natural and easy. We finally decide to go for a walk to show her the surroundings.
Saia – So, tell me, what made you decide to come here? You mentioned you are new to town.
Harper – Well, the hospital made me a pretty convincing offer, so I thought why not? I like new challenges and to be honest I felt like I needed a change. Tell me, what made you choose medicine?
Saia – Well, at first I just wanted to prove to my family that I was good enough.. and smart enough for them to love me. However, nothing seemed to make them happy, so I gave up, I wanted to drop out of the program in my second year until my girlfriend broke my heart.. She cheated on me with one of my friends.. So, I decided to bury myself in my work, forgetting about everything else, and focusing on becoming the doctor I knew I could be.
Harper – Wow, a broken heart leads to many things, but I never thought it could lead to a career. It’s impressive.
Saia – Thank you..
Harper – Well, apparently, we are on my street! Would you like to come in for a drink?..
Saia – Oh, Uhm, I shouldn't..
Harper – Maybe another day..
Saia – Yes, maybe..
Harper – Well thank you for taking the time of showing me around and sharing a piece of yourself. I definitely enjoyed the time..
Saia – Not a problem, glad we ran into each other again!
Harper – I told you we will!
Saia – Yes, you are right! *A smile forms on my lips letting her know she was right*
And just like that, we said goodbye. I make my way home, still thinking about her. She is taking over my thoughts, and I can’t do anything about it.
I get to the hospital, it is about 5 AM, and I am getting ready to start my shift. The day goes by without me noticing, a few surgeries and some rounds and just like that it is the night. I walk through the hallways and I suddenly stop. I see her, walking towards me, I look like shit, I have to hide. Fast. I go in the first on-call room I can see and hide in there. A minute goes by and someone enters the room. It’s her, but she doesn’t know I’m in here.
*Turns the light on*
Harper – Oh God, Saia.. you scared me; I didn’t know you were in here.
Saia – Oh, hi.. yes, I just needed a minute. I’ll leave..
Harper – No! I mean, you don’t have to.. I was just going to lay down for a few minutes, I’ve been in surgeries all day and my back is killing me.
Saia – I.. I could help with that if you wanted me to.
Harper – Really? That would be amazing..
She lays down on her stomach and I sit next to her. I lift her shirt slowly and touch her soft skin with my cold hands. She flinches for a second but then relaxes. I don't say anything, just let her get used to the temperature of my hands. I start to massage her back slowly making sure she is ok with it. After a while she gets up and takes her shirt off, letting me know to keep going. My hands travel up and down her back, but the bra is in the way. She realizes that without me saying anything, and reaches back, undoing her bra. I stop for a second in awe. She is half-naked in front of me and I don't know what to do. I just want to grab her and kiss her. But she is an attending. But she is also half-naked in front of me.. I put my hands on her back and without realizing I scratch her. She feels it and gets up.
Saia – I am so sorry, I didn’t mean..
And without me finishing the sentence she turns around, grabs my face and kisses me. I kiss her back and at this point, I can't hold back anymore. I push her back onto the bed and get on top of her. There are no words anymore, just cravings. We let our cravings speak for themselves not thinking about the consequences. Who cares about those anyway.. She takes my shirt off, I undo my bra, we kiss so passionately we have to stop for a second to breathe and we go back at it in no time. I take her pants off and rip her underwear. At this point we are both naked in the on-call room, the door is not locked but we are too absorbed into one another to think about that. I grab her side and pull her into me, I start to kiss her neck and bite it slowly. She lets out a small moan, letting me know she loves what I am doing. My hand travels down her hip, between her legs and she is dripping wet. I stop and look at her with her smirk knowing it is because of me. I start playing with her lips, she grabs my arm digging her nails into it because of the pleasure she is feeling. I slip two fingers in and I start kissing her again. Her moans become louder and louder and I’m sure people could hear us, but I am too oblivious to think about that. Everything I want is right here, in my arms, begging for more. Seeing her like that makes me so wet and aroused that it can make me finish as soon as she does.. My fingers start to move faster and faster..
Harper – Harder.. I’m close..
She can’t even say the whole sentence before letting out a big moan, reaching the orgasm, and as soon as I see this I can’t hold it in anymore, I let myself to feel it with my whole being.. We are laying naked next to each other, without saying anything. We know what we did, but for now, we are still in this room, holding each other, not having to deal with the outside world.. After 10 minutes or so, her pager goes off, which means we have to leave this behind and go back into the real world.
Harper – I have to go..
Saia – I know..
She gets up, gets dressed, and right before she opened the door, she turns around and lays a kiss on my lips.. My apartment, tomorrow morning, I'll see you then.. I just nodded, and just like that she disappears in the busy hallway like nothing ever happened. Tomorrow morning. Her apartment. Nothing mattered, but that. We will figure everything out at some point, but until then, what’s life without a little bit of a risk..
Tomorrow morning.. her apartment..
